I'm glad I work in a public school and we don't have office parties or gift exchanges.
I'm more than a little annoyed at the IRS. My dad still hasn't gotten his stimulus despite a letter saying it was mailed on May 15th. Today, I called and finally got through to a person, and they were completely useless. Basically, I was told he has to wait. Well, that's fine, but want to know if it actually got mailed out. Is it lost in the mail, or did the IRS never actually mail it out? He didn't have access to that information. Then, to add a wrinkle, the amount is $2400, according to the letter, except my mom died in January, so I asked about that. Is there a number I can call to get the check made out to the correct amount? He didn't know.
So what, pray tell, is his purpose? My mother (who worked for the IRS for 30 some odd years) is probably rolling in her grave right about now.
